A friend and I, both in our sixties want to do a road trip from Carthage MO to PCH the second week of September. We want to travel the southern route to CA and return the Northern route. Our interests are mainly scenery, historical sights and local art. We prefer to be as budget minded as possible. I like camping, she does not. We like to travel off the beaten path but realize that on a trip this long we will need to do some interstate travel at points during this trip. We are both fairly familiar about the southern route. But would like some input from residents of AZ, NM,NV and CA. Hoping someone from along the northern route can help us out also, UT, WY,SD. Of course we don't have adequate time to really see what we want but we have maybe 10 or 11 days. Any advice?
